Innovation and Information
University of South Wales, Treforest, United Kingdom.
2016 (English)In: Innovation in Libraries and Information Services: Advances in Library Administration and Organisation / [ed] David Baker & Wendy Evans, Bingley: Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2016, p. 227-241Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Purpose

The effective and efficient analysis and application of information lies at the heart of success in today’s world. Greater emphasis is now on the quality of information and the confirmation of its value through effective analysis and review. This includes engaging in dialogue to enhance understanding, the empowering role of technology and the versatility that information provides.

Methodology/approach

The chapter considers the innovative use of information from different perspectives to encourage readers to reflect on their own experiences and think about their individual and organisational uses of information with a view to being creative and exploring new avenues of use. Two case studies are included to demonstrate possible approaches – not as a definitive way ahead but more as examples of possibilities.

Findings

There will continue to be new ways of innovating information – some of which we know, others which we don’t yet know. The creative thinking approach that is key to being unafraid to explore and use information to best effect is the overall finding of this chapter.

Originality/value

With the continually changing landscape of technology, the creative and original use of its application is the key to continued entrepreneurial outcomes. Some suggestions for the innovative use of information are included – certainly not a definitive list – to encourage reflection, inspire creativity and stimulate thinking with the overall aim of gaining value from information. © 2017 by Emerald Group Publishing Limited All rights of reproduction in any form reserved.
